Auditions: Jack and the Beanstalk

AUDITIONS MON, SEPTEMBER 27, 2021 & TUE, SEPTEMBER 28, 2021 @4:30PM; Callbacks, Wednesday, September 29, 2021 @4:30pm.
With the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Yolo county requirements needed to keep our youth safe, DMTC has decided to change the winter Young Performers Theater (YPT) show to a title that can be performed with a smaller sized cast. Therefore, auditions on September 27 and 28 will be for Jack and the Beanstalk. The Prince Street Player’s version of Jack and the Beanstalk is designed for a small cast of around 10 performers. We plan to produce Lion King next summer or fall, when hopefully youth have a vaccine option available, and the COVID-19 situation allows us to have larger groups of youth performing indoors.
Keeping participants and volunteers safe, while providing a wonderful experience, is DMTC’s highest priority. To keep up to date on our future offerings, including Lion King, sign up for the DMTC newsletter at https://dmtc.org/newsletter
